Note: This release supports only HERE SDK 3.8 due to newly added feature. Please note, this version requires also map update (Map#84.156 released on June 28, 2018 or fresher), so a re-installation of the demo application might be required for a proper use. On Android please delete the hidden folder msdkui-data on the root level of the internal storage to get rid of the old map data. For a full functional application, the license key needs to be extend to support scooter routing.
